Film | Luck-Key (2016): Korean Comedy-Action (virtual)


Hyung-wook, an infamous assassin known for his perfection, slips on soap at a public sauna and passes out. Jae-sung, an unknown actor who’s hit rock bottom, witnesses the accident and switches his locker key with Hyung-wook’s. Jae-sung opens the locker to find the key to a fancy car which leads him to a luxurious condo along with the full wealth and secrets of a successful hit man. On the other hand, Hyung-wook wakes up with amnesia and the only clue he has for his identity are the outstanding payment bills. With the help of a paramedic, he finds his (actually Jae-sung’s) place discovering that he’s a totally broke nameless actor. While Hyung-wook struggles to remember, he tries to ‘continue’ his life as an actor. And by irony of fate, with the help of real-life action moves that his body is used to, he soon becomes the new action hero on TV. And with the continuous shooting of the action sequences, his memory starts to return. In Korean with English subtitles.

Discussion | Culinary Luminaries: Chinese Food History in the US (virtual)


In the years after World War II, Buwei Yang Chao and Cecilia Chiang, changed how Americans think about Chinese food. Chao's seminal cookbook, How to Cook and Eat in Chinese Food, not only presented dishes that Chinese actually ate, but was the first to explain the intricacies of the Chinese meal system. The Mandarin, Chiang's San Francisco restaurant, showed that there was far more to Chinese food than chop suey and chow mein, opening the door to regional cuisines from around China. Join chef and author Kian Lam Kho, food historian Paul Freedman, and moderator Andrew Coe for a discussion of these two culinary pioneers.

Book Discussion | A Bright Ray of Darkness: Oscar Nominee Ethan Hawke Talks About his Book (virtual)


The acclaimed actor/writer/director’s first novel in 20 years is the blistering story of a young man making his Broadway debut in Henry IV just as his marriage implodes. Four-time Academy Award nominee, twice for writing and twice for acting, Ethan Hawke’s new novel is a bracing meditation on fame and celebrity and the redemptive, healing power of art; a portrait of divorce; and a poignant consideration on fatherhood. It’s also a passionate love letter to the world of theater. His narrator is a young man in torment, disgusted with himself after the collapse of his marriage, still half-hoping for a reconciliation that would allow him to forgive himself and move on. But he might find his redemption in the challenge of performing Hotspur in a production of Henry IV under the leadership of a brilliant director, helmed by one of the most electrifying—and narcissistic—Falstaffs of all time.
